The only thing more fun than building a brewery is re-building a brewery. At the end of the day, though, fermentation is still my favorite sound!

Jack Daniel's barrel houses are causing an out-of-control black 'whiskey fungus' in a Tennessee community, enraged residents say 02/03/2023

Interesting, Loefler makes a foam fungecide spray that we used when we were a basement brewery.

Jack Daniel's barrel houses are causing an out-of-control black 'whiskey fungus' in a Tennessee community, enraged residents say Tennessee residents say the black fungus fueled by the Jack Daniel's facilities coats their homes, cars, and trees and is nearly impossible to remove.

We are super lucky to have a distillery in town as creative as Chattanooga Whiskey, I just scored a bottle of the Cabernet Cask, which reminded me of the Golden Rod Beer Barrel aged Chatt whiskey of years ago. Like I said-Lucky.


Love these guys!


A very small batch of Golden Rod will soon be ready after I get this bad boy fined and carbonated!


And they’ll be tapping St. Elmo Smart Ass. Stop by and say hi and I’ll get you some MBBC swag!

Wonder what's happening in beautiful downtown Pikeville this weekend July 2, 2022... Star Spangled Celebration!!!!

The Venue and Bankwalker Brewing will be hosting a Co****le tournament starting at 5. This year we're shaking it up a bit and doing only a blind draw. It's double elimination and $5 entry fee per person. We have new American Co****le League comp series boards and you can bring your own bags or use our house bags! This is an outdoor event but if the weather is a challenge (too hot or wet) we can move this inside!


The Smart Ass is back! In Pikeville, that is….. Road trip anybody!!??

Everyone loves a Smart Ass! coming to Bankwalker Brewing Co! - (St. Elmo Smart Ass, that is)


I’m very slowly working on a book of MBBC brewing tips, anecdotes, and recipes. It’s seems a shame to waste 13 years of knowledge and good times!😀 If you would like to share some experiences please feel free! For those of you who weren’t there, our funky little brewery was unique for a few reasons.
1) We refused to dumb down or categorize our customers. This is the antithesis of good marketing. Each customer was treated as a sharing friend. I and my crew came to work everyday excited about our creations. We wanted to communicate that feeling of excitement and discovery to our customer friends. We actively worked to encourage customers to forget any preconceptions and discover something new they liked. We annoyed a very few, but pleasantly surprised a lot.

2) We refused to dumb down and categorize our beers other than the general style classifications. If you pressed us, we would drill down into sub-classifications-but we weren’t to happy about it. (BJCP Beer Geeks).

3) This process of discovery and creativity infused (infected?) our entire business and was present in production, ingredient choice, advertising, personnel, and presentation of product, location, and decor.

4) Brewery tours were sold as discounted “experiences “ on Groupon. This was not antithical to marketing and actually allowed us to survive much longer than anticipated. “Discounted” brewery tours produced some return customers but also provided a steady stream of revenue and customers during slow times. Also during busy times😳 Take note Nano breweries and distilleries-The value of an experience is arbitrary and open to much more interpretation than, say, a gallon of milk or a can of Bud light. Our light bulb was the term “V.I.P.,- V.I.P., anything always costs more. What if we cut the cost in half? -boom.
Lot’s of personal labor in this one. Time spent talking and walking. Time that could been spent with family. But good marketing.
And now the truth— those tours were another attempt at communicating passion, making new friends, and taking them on a creative adventure. And, if truth be known, an obvious bid for brewery and self affirmation.
When we said “Weird is good,”we really meant it. Weird is the unexpected that you later fall in love with-that was our hope. Or weird is what you would have rather avoided. Either way, you grew and learned, all because of “weird”. We thought that was important.

Next I’ll discuss how our philosophy translated into ingredients and process.


For everything their is a season-but I sure do miss you guys!!!!!!
